Property Description

Communism is back!

Between Old Town and Jewish Quarter (Kazimierz) you can find a place which shows you the absurdity of communism times in Poland ‘through colorful and optimistic glasses’. A place where you have an opportunity to touch (quite literally) some characteristic elements of those bizzare years, which will make your eyes open wide and make you laugh reminding or realizing them.

Good Bye Lenin will offer you rooms stylized on past decade, bar with Lenin touch and garden where you can chill after sightseeing or get some cheap drinks before heading to clubs. If you are interested in going to Auschwitz, Wieliczka Salt Mine or sightseeing in this amazing city - our laid back staff will help you with everythin because we are here for you!

This is a place that lets the positive energy flow and create – good talk, great fun and lasting friendships. This place is for all who know that it is the people that make the journey. This is also what we believe in, which is why we invite you to stay with us while in Krakow and make your journey absolutely amazing!

And facilities like free bed linen, free internet, free laundry and free self-service buffet breakfast are so obvious to us that seem abundant to mention it (see our Facilities section for the full list) View House Rules

    Very good, staff was very friend and helpful, the location is awesome, within a 30min walk you can meet all the main touristic points. They have a laundry service for 15pln. The rooms were good, the only problems: there is not enough power plugs, only 5 (including the bathroom one) in a 10 beds room, and the internet didn’t work very well inside the rooms.

    If you are looking for a cheap and nice stay, I recommend this place. It’s basically in the center of Krakow, it’s really cheap and you actually get a lot for the price you pay (for example the breakfast is free, there’s a kitchen you can use) and the people who’ve been staying there in the same time as us were really friendly. There’s a grocery store right across the street, so you can even shop there, the center is for a 10 minute walk and it’s close to the train station (20 min walk).

    The hostel is nice and the staff is friendly and really helpful. Unfortunately there was no hot water in out room and the bar was not open through our stay. Also some weird insect bites appeared on us during/after out stay.

    There's 2 goodbye lenin in Krakow and we walked to the wrong one, but they were really cool about it and instead found us a room there. Everything was great aside from the kitchen which burners couldn't even cook an egg and there was no hot water! My shower was freezing cold even after telling reception over 4 times about it.

    The hostel is a great location and the breakfast is really good with cereals, toast and salad food. The hostel is next to the Jewish Quarter and a 15 minute walk from the main square. The hostel is clean but a bit tired looking. Our beds were broken underneath but apart from that the hostel worked well for the trip.

    The hostel did the job we needed, a bed for a few nights in a good location. There were some good facilities, such as free breakfast and washing facilities. However, it wasn't the cleanest place. There were stains on mattresses, the whole place looked like it needed a paint job and it smelt bad in some places. We stayed at the beginning of July and it was very quiet, bar a scout group, so not much of an atmosphere. Staff were very helpful when we left an item however.

    Where do I start. Bed bugs, needed a map to locate my pillow and blanket, almost sacked it off the top bunk when the ladder snapped off. Great breakfast though.

    Honestly, it was one of the worst hostels I have been to, there were no security locks available to put on your lockers! Plus there is no WIFI except in the lobby!!!! Even though it is written they provide both, it wasn't true. The bathrooms were not that clean and they smelled bad. The room was okay, except for not being able to use the lockers since no locks were available to close them. However, its location is nice.
